Last week I attended the Association of American Geographers Annual Conference and heard a talk by Robert Groves, Director of the US Census Bureau.
Aside the impressiveness of the bureau’s work I was struck by how Groves conceived of visualisations as requiring either fast thinking or slow thinking. Fast thinking data visualisations offer a clear message without the need for the viewer to spend more than a few seconds exploring them. Area Cartogram Maps Explored. Area cartogram maps are maps of non-absolute space where the areal extent is in proportion to some measured value.
Cartogram maps retain a partially accurate relative location and relative space, but the actual area of the individual polygons features are overrepresented or underrepresented based on the assigned values. Area cartograms are useful for visualizing relativity based on a common quantitative attribute such as population. Cartograms were popularized by Erwin Raisz who published the first statistical cartograms of the United States. Raisz was a professor of cartography at the Institute of Geographical Exploration at Harvard University and was most well known for his physical relief maps which were hand drawn. In 1934, Raisz published in the journal Geographical Review an article entitled, “The rectangular statistical cartogram” which popularized the use of cartograms as an educational tool for learning about geography. Non-contiguous Cartogram Maps. Visuell, das Blog der Visualisierung. Spring Data – Part 4: Geospatial Queries with MongoDB.
Visual Gadgets. Adds Neo4j graph database support, screencast. Neo4j is a powerful, award-wining graph database written in Java.
It can store billions of nodes and relationships and allows very fast query/traversal. We release today a new version of the Neo4j Plugin supporting the latest 1.5 version of Neo4j. In Gephi, go to Tools > Plugins to install the plug-in. The plugin let you visualize a graph stored in a Neo4j database and play with it. Features include full import, traversal, filter, export and lazy loading. InstantAtlas. Inequality Tutorial Using Instant Atlas. Guest contribution by Robert Lang.
Inequality is a topic that is increasingly being taught at key stage 3 and in other key stages particularly in GCSE and post 16 courses where comparing places in relation to standard and quality of life and inequality is important. The study of inequality based on geographical factors can involve understanding terrain, climate, culture, industry, agriculture, level of development in the region/country, remoteness, urbanization, industrialization, governmental policy measures, population, and mechanization. Resulting inequality presents itself in the form of poverty, access to and quality of health care services, educational services, infrastructure, HDI [human development index] factors, government corruption or inefficiencies, among others.
Inequality Tutorial Using Instant Atlas. Clearly and Simply: Choropleth Maps. A step-by-step guide to Richard Leeke’s TabGeoHack for creating your own filled maps in Tableau Software Way back in 2009, we had a beautiful guest post by Giedre Aleknonyte describing a workaround to generate Choropleth Maps with Tableau (using version 5.0 by the way).
Those days are over. One of the major new features of Tableau 7 is Filled Maps (or Choropleth Maps as we used to call them in all blog posts here). Did I say those days are over? Well, not quite.

OTR Links - Visualisation links. Spatial Data Mining and Visual Analytics Lab. OECD Statistics Explorer and Some Other Cool Shit. Kartograph aims to make interactive vector maps easier. Gregor Aisch wanted a better way to make maps online that allowed something other than the Mercator projection, so he developed his own.
The result is Kartograph, a lightweight framework "for building interactive map applications without Google Maps or any other mapping service. How To Import Data and Make Maps with Google Fusion Tables. This GIS tutorial by Naveen Sidda looks at Google Fusions Tables, how to import geographic data from a web page, and how to create map out geographic data within Google Maps.

GAV Flash Tools The Geovisual Analytics Visualization or GAV component-sharing toolkit and application-building environment is based on the principles behind the Visual Analytics research program including aspects of explorative and collaborative visual data analysis. It contains a collection of visual components, data analysis algorithms, tools that connect the components to each other and data providers that can load data from various sources. The framework is fully integrated with Adobe’s Flex Framework. The GAV toolkit was developed to build statistical geovisual analytics applications such as the eXplorer GAV Flash uses the Adobe Flash API for graphics and integrates with the Adobe Flex Framework.
